This was way fun! Lemme know what you think of it!! I had this huge bead catalog laying around and there was no use for it. I saw the post about the woven magazine purse, so I decided to use it for that. It's the first time I ever made a purse out of anything.

Thanks a lot for any feedback!!
I guess I have tons of extra time on my hands because I have completed my woven magazine messenger bag!!!! I think it's awesome. It's also made out of the bead catalog pages. Lemme know what you think of it!:)

Just to show how wide it is, I guess:
This is it opened up:
And this is the handle up close:
Thanks in advance for any feedback! You guys are awesome!
